You’ve finished playing for the weekend and believe that your putting cost you quite a few shots.  For the practice sessions the following week do you a) focus almost exclusively on putting to try to ensure it is better next week b) keep to a balanced practice schedule or c) buy a new putter? Most people tend to do either a) or c).  …

How good are parents at separating the parent-caddy roles in golf for juniors?  Very good answer the parents; not so good answer many junior golfers.

The pivot is the body movement in the golf swing.  This post is a video clip which goes for about 6 minutes where I present on how the club, arms, hips and shoulders work during the golf swing to bring about straight and powerful shots. This post is to show how it is possible to get beyond being concerned with …

“I have worked with Graeme McDowell on his mental game for over five years.  In that time some NLP techniques have proven invaluable to our progress.  The culmination of a US Open win does suggest that any golfer wanting to become the best they can be NEEDS to train BOTH technique and mind.  It is with this combination that you …
